The Adoba® Eco Hotel Rapid City hosted the local Chamber Mixer on March 12th, with an out of the ordinary socially responsible twist; a celebrated PB&J contest to benefit Feeding South Dakota and families within Rapid City.

This creative collaboration brought together the event’s attendees and put a fun spin to the monthly mixer. The PB&J teams prepared over 600 sandwiches.

Lauren Forsch Development Associate for Feeding South Dakota said, “We are very thankful to partner with a brand like Adoba® Hotel that encourages both community members and guests alike to embrace their mission of 'Travel with a Purpose and Change the World Today.' The Adoba® Eco Hotel team and the PB&J participants really stepped up and exceeded our expectations by hosting such a fun and highly successful event that will make a positive impact on, and provide a special treat to, more than 600 children in need within our community.”

The evening mixer offered a line-up of activities that included; the Adoba brands first venture with Feeding South Dakota and hosting the famed PB&J contest, organic hors d'oeuvres and entrée samples from the soon to be launched new organic menu and several sustainable wines. Another top billing for the evening was the guided tours of the property’s newly renovated eco-friendly guestrooms. The renovated guestrooms will offer one of the hottest sustainable designs in the industry.

“The Adoba® Eco Hotel green DNA is built on caring for the communities in which we operate, so Global Stewardship comes naturally to us. Yes, our brand focuses on environmental practices and design, but equally important is our commitment to enriching the communities we operate within. This event was the perfect venue to include an activity that would allow for so many local leaders to do something good for the community and have fun at the same time,” said Adrienne Pumphrey, Global Head of the Adoba® Brand. It was a huge success and impressive to see a community of individual’s come together in such a good cause.
